Change of housing unit

Wed 03 May

When you already live in an SSN student housing, you will be given priority in the queue if you apply for a change, so-called internal relocation.

Apply from My page

You apply for a change of residence on My page by submitting a new application.

Information about change of residence:

  • All financial posts for the present residence must be settled before you move.

  • You submit a new housing application on My Page, and the system automatically gives you status as an "internal applicant" when you are already a tenant with us. Internal applicants have priority on the waiting list.

  • You should NOT terminate the lease of the unit you live in. Once you have been allocated your new unit and have signed the new contract, your previous unit will automatically be terminated and you have three - 3 - days to move your belongings to the new unit. From 1 August 2023 you have seven - 7 - days to move.

  • Rent will be charged for both residences in the period in which you are in disposition of both . i.e. minimum four days of double rent (seven days from 1 August 2023).

  • Internal relocation is unfortunately not possible at the start of the semester (January and August).

  • Applications to change residence to a campus you do not belong to will only be given priority in special cases.

Example of calculation for a change of residence from 1 March:

Current rent per month NOK 5,700 is payable for seven days from 1 March (5,700/31)x7=NOK 1,287

New rent per month NOK 6,400 is payable from 1 March.

Total to pay for 1287+6400=7687

Rent invoice when changing housings unit:

  • Rent invoice for your new unit was sent to you when you signed the contract for it.

  • If the invoice for the month you are moving, has been sent, you will receive a credit note for the unit you are moving out from.

  • If you have already paid the invoice for the month for which you received the credit note, you have two options:
    1. Get your credit note paid back to you. Send your account number to [email protected].
    2. Link the payment you have made to the new invoice you have received for the unit you are moving to. If you want this, send an e-mail to [email protected].
